    Sooo today me and one of my buddys go to a local gun shop, to look at accessories. I found a laser there that I thought would be nice for my ar when I get it next week.. Soo I look at the price tag and it says 19.99. and the guy says its a VERY good one.. Soo im like hmmm 19.99 what do i gotta loose.. Soo i get it and bring it home and put it on my shotty just to see how i like it.. Well I look up some info on it and see that its really a $150 one and Im like DAMN I got a good deal... Well Im thinking to myself that i got a deal to good to be true... Soo i come home from dinner with my women and some friends and check my bank account... turns out it was $119.00 I look at the price tag and the first 1 is almost none existent i was like :(... Soo i should of double checked the final price before entering my pen for my debit card... but GRRRRR!!

    Nope, I usually check the total before I hand the cash over. Since I try and figure out the approximate total in my head...

    I hate seeing unclear pricing though...

    Being kind of new to the online shopping, I bid on a mag holster on Ebay. I won it. It only cost me .99, plus 2.50 shipping.
    Well I got it yesterday, It was from Tactical "TOYS". I didn't think that toys were that indepth. It is 1.2" high and 1/4" square, there is velcro to secure the thing to a very tiny belt, and to secure a very tiny mag inside.

    That's rough, I've also learned the hard way to double check everything affecting prices.

    Ebay has other problems too, including people selling pamphlets for GPS units for the cost of a real gps.
